      Chief Rabbinate to Discuss Tzohar Marriages

      Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger has called a meeting of the council of the Chief Rabbinate on Tuesday to discuss last week's agreement between the Ministry of Religious Services and the Tzohar rabbinical organization, which allowed Tzohar to continue its program of performing marriages for the Israeli population at large.

      The ministry had suspended the issuing of marriage certificates to the organization, claiming that the marriages should be processed through local rabbinical councils.
